A Mother and Child’s Perspective Looks to Tell Stories with Disposable Cameras

Photography has a lot to do with the photographer’s control to achieve results which have been planned and visualized beforehand. However, the intimate, beautiful, and priceless moments in life often happen at the most unexpected times, usually without the presence of photographers. Therefore, instead of actively shooting, Tailor Moore decided to let mothers and children tell their own stories by handing them disposable cameras to document a photo series from their perspective.

The idea for the Kickstarter project “A Mother And Child’s Perspective” was conceived when Tailor saw an image (the featured image of this article) taken by her three year old toddler with her smartphone. The photograph struck her as being purely honest and raw about both herself and of motherhood in general. It was a glimpse of what children really see in their parents from their perspective, and that’s how Tailor found the idea for this project. “It’s simple. I’m going to provide an opportunity for mothers and children to tell a story together, their story,” said Tailor.  Continue reading…

The 48Hr Switch, The Ultimate All-In-One Bag For Photographers?

The never ending struggle as a photographer is finding that perfect bag. The one that carries everything you need it to without a ton of wasted space, that also looks good and matches your unique style. The one that can double as a camera bag, or a travel bag when needed.

For most of us, we never really find the one bag that covers it all, instead resorting to multiple bags for each use. This is expensive and not very space efficient (just ask my wife) but, lucky for us, there is a new option on the horizon that could be the answer to all our prayers – The 48hr Switch.
